With purchased meatballs, this hearty entrée for six is easy to make. And with bread slices surrounding the dish, it’s pretty to serve!
Updated Nov 19, 2009

Ingredients

  • 18 to 24 slices (1/4 inch thick) baguette French bread
  • 1/4 cup olive or vegetable oil
  • 1 package (1 lb) frozen cooked Italian-style or regular meatballs (32), thawed
  • 1 bag (1 lb) frozen bell pepper and onion stir-fry, thawed, drained
  • 1 1/2 cups tomato pasta sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (4 oz)

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Brush 1 side of each bread slice with oil. In ungreased 9 1/2-inch deep-dish pie plate, line bottom and side with bread, oil side up and slightly overlapping slices.
  • 2
    Bake 5 to 10 minutes or until edges are light golden brown.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, in large bowl, gently mix meatballs, bell pepper and onion stir-fry, and pasta sauce to coat.
  • 4
    Spoon meatball mixture into crust; bake uncovered 25 to 30 minutes or until thoroughly heated in center. Sprinkle with cheese; bake 5 to 10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.

    If the meatballs that you're using are large, just cut each one in half before mixing with the sauce.
